I recently retrieved some of my old work files from when I was still with IFS so I decided to share some of them here with you.

This is one of a number of plate illustrations I did for Osprey Publishing's Osprey Adventure series. This one in particular is for their book, Knights Templar: A Secret History . Pls note that although these works may seem somewhat historical they're mostly fictional in nature.

Jacques de Molay, Grandmaster of the Templars, was sentenced to death by burning at the stake. The legend goes that he cursed both King Philip the Fair and Pope Clement from the stake, both of whom died within a year of de Molay's death. Done in 2013.
